Limmud: to go or not to go, the argument continues

Whatever else it has done, Chief Rabbi Mirvis’s decision to attend next month’s Limmud conference has reawakened the debate over Orthodox-Progressive relations and pluralism.

Here is one of the more thoughtful contributions from an Orthodox non-Limmud goer, Daniel Greenberg.

I wish people would stop referring to Efraim Mirvis as Chief Rabbi - he's at best the movement rabbi of the United Synagogue.
And if there are any Orthodox of any stripe who don't want to go, then no one's twisting their arm. There'll be more baked potatoes for us pluralists.

I wonder if Yappy Dogfish has had his pond cleaned yet. It really should be drained.

Perhaps, Yappy Dogfish, it's because this Millis fellow hasn't said much wrong since I've been hear whereas all you've done is post stuff that is easily accessible elsewhere, attacked those who disagree with you and reposted your own unoriginal stuff to jump to the head of the queue. Is it any wonder that for days on end you are the only one whose name is here. If only, that is, you'd reveal your real name and stop being a coward.

I wish someone would drain your pond.

Simon, I agree with Millis. If some isolationist orthodox don't want to go to UK Jewry's greatest creation and export, what's the big deal? No one's forcing them.

It's hardly going to make a difference as I understand Limmud organisers are having to find even more accommodation for record numbers of attendees.

Yappy Dogfish, do you actually know what et al means? It includes Millis, like you an unhitched and undermedicated loon. Most everyone knows where to look for TV and radio listings. That's probably why the JC dropped them.
Now this page will go days on end with just you posting and trying to stay top of the pile. Tosser.

Chaim Pesach: … all you've done is post stuff that is easily accessible elsewhere …

only if you know where to look – and what to look for!

unlike some others here, i don't make things up … i get my facts from outside sources, and i provide the "easily accessible" links so that anyone can check my sources, and judge for themselves

Chaim Pesach: … attacked those who disagree with you …

i've only attacked those who lie about me (or about other jc.com bloggers), not those who disagree with me

Chaim Pesach: … Is it any wonder that for days on end you are the only one whose name is here.

thats simply not true

Chaim Pesach: I wonder if Yappy Dogfish has had his pond cleaned yet. It really should be drained.

Chaim Pesach: It seems to be inhabited by unhinged loons, Happy Goldfish, Richard Armbach, Suzanna et al, as it is.

chaim pesach, you came to this website to make trouble and to lie

and now you trash everyone (except, i think, joe millis) who has posted since you came here!

Chaim Pesach: Yappy Dogfish, do you actually know what et al means?

yes!

it doesn't mean "and all", it means "and others" (certainly not all others)

Chaim Pesach: It includes Millis, like you an unhitched and undermedicated loon.

thankyou for the clarification

it was because you left joe off your original list that i cautiously said "i think" ("except, i think, … joe millis")

Chaim Pesach: Now this page will go days on end with just you posting and trying to stay top of the pile.

chaim, this page has 5 posts of yours (2 of them identical!s) and only 1 of mine

the "LATEST COMMENTS" list (on every blog page) has 4 of yours and only 1 of mine

joemillis1959: I wish people would stop referring to Efraim Mirvis as Chief Rabbi - he's at best the movement rabbi of the United Synagogue.

and i wish people would stop referring to justin welby as archbishop - at best he's the movement bishop of the church of england!

and why refer to elizabeth windsor as queen - at best she's the head of state of the united kingdom?

ooohh … and does this mean that unreformed jews needn't refer to jason holtz as rabbi - at best he's the movement rabbi of bromley reform synagogue?

joemillis1959: There'll be more baked potatoes for us pluralists.

you half-baked pluralists are so cliquey!

Gee, thanks for the Latin lesson. Dunno about you, but they did teach that stuff at my lowly grammar school in the 70s.

There's Only one posting of yours because you keep reposting practically the same one with a few amendments.in effect you've reposted the same stuff about five times. At least mine are original,yours are just repeats.

If you had any courage, you would reveal who you are. As it is, because you hide, why should anyone believe what you post?

Now wallow in your algae ridden pond for a few days, safe in the knowledge you-ll be top of the pile.

Who are these people? Are they members of some far right group of saddoes?
